Are these the same cuts that nobody will face up to because some just can't be made?
So say we cut the dole from what it is at the moment to oh I don't know maybe 150e a week, since its one of the biggest outgoings for the government it seems its the best thing to change to have the biggest affect.
We'll then cut further funding for education, HSE, public transport and roads,
Ok then we'll try make massive cuts across the public sector and watch the rolling strikes that will happen because of it,
In time we may indeed balance those books but at what cost exactly?
- Loss of multinational investments
- An employment rate in excess of 20%+ (Hi Spain!)
- Work stoppages to remind us of the strikes in the 80's, these will of course put companys off investing in Ireland further
- Even more emigration as people can't live on 150e a week in Ireland
You want the eu to fail and Ireland to make deep cuts then perhaps you should look at a likely reality of the outcome if such things were allowed to happen.
Incidentally both yourself and sully are scaremonegring. This country has been through the rough and tough before and we got thru it.
